Highlights From 2004

A soldier with the Idaho National Guard asked about old and missing equipment. Many in the audience cheered.

"You can have all the armor in the world on a tank, and a tank can be blown up," Rumsfeld replied. "You can have an up-armored Humvee and it can be blown up."

Retired Army general Barry McCaffrey, a veteran of the 1991 Gulf War, said it was "outrageous" for a Defense secretary to make such comments to soldiers being sent into harm's way.

Comic Jay Leno related Rumsfeld's comment on NBC's Tonight Show. "Then he got in his armored car and left," Leno said.

How does Rumsfeld survive?
